Veritas Phonics K
There’s a lot to like in this museum-themed program featuring Percival, the boy knight. In this level, students learn beginning sounds, short vowels, beginning and ending blends, consonant and vowel digraphs, vowel diphthongs, the two y sounds, and suffixes “tion” and “sion”. The Student Book is full of useful, well-conceived activities to teach phonics skills. Handwriting (DNealian-style) is included and instructions for forming each letter are in the Teacher Manual. The Teacher Manual gives clear instruction for implementing all the multisensory learning methods. The 10 Kindergarten Primers are easy and engaging stories for beginner readers. These books are well constructed with nice, glossy covers and colorful illustrations. Art activities, music, art flashcards, and many other games keep children engaged in the learning. Each kit includes everything needed for the year. Songs are accessed free after setting up an account at the publisher’s website.
